Charnwood W588  8″ wide x 5″ deep Planer thicknesser.

A compact and portable planer thicknesser which is light enough to move off the bench when not in use and yet tough enough to produce 8″ x 5″ timber into flat and dimensioned pieces. The plaing beds are precision ground aluminium and the guide fence is a rigid aluminium extrusion which can be tilted and locked at any angle up to 45 degrees when required. The steel thicknessing bed has an extension arm on the outfeed side and is supported in each corner by chain driven adjusting screws.

Once the height is set, rubber coated feed rollers pass the timber through the cutter. The dust hood is particularly good, fitting on top of the thicknessing bed during planing operations and then moved over the top when thicknessing. A location sensor detects that the dust hood has been correctly fitted before allowing the motor to run.

Supplied with re-grindable knives, 100mm diameter dust extraction outlet, blade setting tool, cable and plug. Light Enough to be Portable 8″ Planing Capacity 8″ x 5″ Thicknessing Capacity Full Cutter Guarding Tilting Fence 100mm Extraction Outlet.
